Our Deluxe 48” x 24” kit without UV is suitable for a wide variety of snakes. Most species of snake which do not grow larger than 6 feet in overall length may use a 48” x 24” enclosure to house them for life. This enclosure is a great size to house a single or a small group of Royal Pythons and will give them plenty of room to move around and will allow you to fill the tank with interesting décor, hides and climbing branches. Amazon Tree boas, Dwarf Central American boas, Hogg Island boas, Bredls Pythons, Brazilian Rainbow Boas, Bull Snakes and many others could live in this enclosure. Also other larger species could use this enclosure as a temporary home until they are big enough to move to their full sized enclosures.
This Deluxe set up is heated by a 250W ceramic bulb, protected by a cage guard and controlled by a Pulse Proportional Thermostat. This is a very efficient heat source, and produces no light, which means you can keep your animal at the right temperature 24hrs a day whilst still maintaining a more natural night-time darkness.
The digital thermostats are much the same as the basic ones discussed above, but with some added benefits. You will get a digital readout, added safety cut off and a separate channel for putting an extra electrical item on a timer. The Digital thermostat will also allow you to program a controlled night time drop in temperature (very useful for many chameleons). Plus it will give you a permanent readout off the current temperature inside your enclosure on an easy to read display.
This addition keeps your animal safely in the enclosure. Often it is a more useful as a way of keeping unwanted attention out. Such as young children and other curious pets.
As it says we will upgrade your analogue thermometer for a digital thermometer with probe. This will make it easier to read and less opening and closing your enclose to check it’s all work correctly. The digital thermometer is also more accurate and measures the temperature to an accuracy 0.1F.
